Diego Maradona backtracks on Lionel Messi 'toilet' criticism

The FC guys look ahead to Barcelona's schedule during the three weeks Lionel Messi is expected to be out after he fractured his arm against Sevilla.
Check out all the notable action from Europe this weekend, including Lionel Messi's injury, Thierry Henry's debut and Icardi's Milan derby heroics.
Barcelona took care of Sevilla at the Camp Nou, but victory came at a price as star-man Lionel Messi was subbed off in the 15th minute with an apparent arm injury.

Diego Maradona attempted to defuse his controversial comments about Lionel Messi by claiming his friendship with the Barcelona and Argentina forward is "bigger than anything that journalists can write."

Maradona made headlines earlier this month when he criticised Messi by saying "it's useless trying to make a leader out of a man who goes to the toilet 20 times before a game."

Maradona was referring to the extreme nerves Messi feels ahead of certain games which have seen him vomit before and...

Diego Maradona has no cartilage left in knees, needs surgery and prostheses - surgeon

Diego Maradona's orthopedic surgeon says the Argentina football great has no cartilage left in his knees due to severe osteoarthritis and will need prostheses.

German Ochoa also said Friday that the 57-year-old Maradona must decide if he wants to have surgery.

Maradona captained Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title. He became the new coach of Mexican second-tier club Dorados de Sinaloa last month.

He has been recently seen walking with difficulty due to the osteoarthritis which has affected him...

Brazil's narrow victory is more worrying than Argentina's defeat

Brazil snatched it right at the end, centre-back Miranda shrugging off Nicolas Otamendi at a corner to glance in the 1-0 winner over Argentina ahead of keeper Sergio Romero. But Brazil boss Tite may well come away from Saudi Arabia a slightly more worried man than Lionel Scaloni, his Argentine counterpart.

The teams are at vastly different stages of development.

Scaloni is a caretaker coach, in temporary charge. The chaos of Argentina's World Cup campaign has forced the FA to think long and...

A stoppage-time goal from Miranda gave Brazil a 1-0 win over South American rivals Argentina in a foul-laden friendly in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.

The central defender rose at the near post to beat Argentina keeper Sergio Romero to a Neymar corner and head home the winner, deciding a game that was set to go to penalties to determine the outcome.

"Scoring a goal against Argentina is always gratifying and always exciting," Miranda said.

Argentina are one of only two teams to have beaten Brazil since...

Lionel Messi dazzled by champion pizza tosser during international break

When it comes to eating copious amounts of pizza prepared by one of the world's best dough tossers, Lionel Messi knows carbs don't count when they're consumed on holiday.

Messi, whose weakness for the dish has been well-documented, spent time during his Argentina sabbatical by receiving a first-hand demonstration from chef Fabian Martin -- twice crowned in Naples as the world pizza champion and apparently a member of, yes, the Pizza Hall of Fame.

The Barcelona star, along with his wife, Antonella...
